Lowered too much?

I had my 07GT lowered last spring...complete lowering kit - Eibach pro Sport.
I have now removed the stock (18) wheels in place for 20's. I am concerned that they may be too low in the back...barely get two fingers in.
I don't want rubbing or other damage?

Any way this can be adjusted or is the height just the way it will be with that kit?

Any suggestions?

You can buy thicker isolaters and swap out the factory ones. Easiest way to gain a little clearance. Maximum motorsports sells a good set if I remember correctly.

most 05+ have little rubbing issues on the fenders due to the back ones have no fender edge like older cars do.

I agreed with thicker isolators. ^^^ That's the cheapest and easiest option to give you a little more fender clearance.

Good luck!

if you have not rubbed your tire yet and you have driven on and over some bumpy roads you should be fine

Yeah I agree, the best thing to do is drive around on some rough roads and see what happens before you start spending money/tearing things apart. Looks good though!
